The couple fell in love in her family’s field. The very field they were married in, and as if that weren’t enough to get the tears flowing, the love they share is one of the most beautiful loves I’ve ever come across. Thank you, thank you, Paperback Films, for capturing it so wonderfully!
From Paperback Films… We kept hearing story after story about how these two knew they were meant for each other. It became the basis for our film; a true account of soul mates. It’s a story of struggle, redemption, perseverance, and family. Faith is ultimately what guided them together. A true calling; a true love story with a happy beginning.
For me, the day was deeply impactful. We were quickly caught up in the day’s events. Jessica and her family had put a lot of planning and labour into this wedding and it showed. With the help of Soiree Event Planning, it looked even more spectacular. Every detail was so delicately thought out and put together. One of our favourite areas on the farm was the ceremony location in a beautiful Manitoba prairie field. A well developed crop with a section flattened in the distance. Bails of hay for seating and a fence made out of crops. It was a field of dreams.
This location was so important for the wedding… this is the land that Jessica’s family has farmed for generations, and the field where Jessica & Ronnie first fell in love. The day begins with all the girls getting ready, a handful of stunning details and their first look of the day. Two locations near the farm were important to these two… a few grain bins close by, the actual spot they fell in love. Memories of their favorite ice cream stop which is now closed.
Perfect weather, comfy bails of hay for the guests to sit on, and officiated by a close family friend.

I know it’s Tuesday, which means we’ve gotten over the Monday blues, but just in case they’re sticking around a little longer this week, I’ve absolutely got the remedy in this beautiful film from Paperback Films. It’s a total dream and the smile that will appear on your face in the first three seconds of this film will stick around for the rest of the day.
From the cinematographer… Kate was well in-tune with what we were creating for people and what it meant. Jeff and Kate both live out in Vancouver. The story of how they got there is fascinating. When we see these two holding hands, crossing over a divide in the garden and walking in parallel to meet again at the end – it is really a strong metaphor to how they ended up together. After a few disappointing years, Kate gave up on relationships. She decided to move out west to begin a new life, where she found herself working at a bank. There, she interacted with customers as they came and went until Jeff came through those doors. Jeff made an effort to keep coming back to her and before they knew it, they were together at last.
If you’ve ever met a guy who is passionate about life, Jeff is that person. The morning of his wedding, though he was a bit shy at first, he quickly forgot about cameras following him around. He’s the type of person who isn’t often caught off guard. His passion lies in fitness and training which goes so well with his character – strong, witty and sharp. When he turned around and gazed into Kate’s eyes for the first time, his heart started pounding and for the first time that day he was at a loss for words. From there on, he forgot everything else in the world and focused on her. They shared this important day with friends and family gathered for a rooftop ceremony, followed by a wonderfully warm reception downstairs at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. It’s always fun working with friends and we had the pleasure of working with Luckygirl Photography that day as well. We hope you enjoy.

Many a pretty wedding has marched through our pages over the years, but when we’re talking a wedding planner’s wedding? Well, those are always a little extra special. *Cue*Soiree Event Planning’s “I do” beautifully captured by Paperback Films. It’s trend meets tradition with no design stone unturned, and it’s all waiting for you to press “play.”
From Paperback Films… We’ve always find a couple scenarios that could potentially make us get really nervous when filming. Things like bad weather; it can really change the look and feel of the day. It was something else for this wedding. It was filming someone whom you deeply respect and know as a friend. You always want to make the story perfect. The butterfly’s where of plenty.
We have known Andrea for a long time, both personal and professionally. We usually have the great privilege of working with her event planning company, Soiree Event Planning. She has literately seen us in every scenario possible, especially during same day edit. So naturally, when she asked us to film her wedding, we were thrilled!
What we love about this film is its such a simple, timeless story. Andrea could have done anything she wanted. She has seen it all. But she kept everything meaningful and elegant for herself and her husband Ryan. A simple expression of exactly who they are. It was a privilege to be apart of this day. We were able to once again, not only work along side Andrea, a friend, but were also a witness of their commitment and celebration.
